New rules had been implemented since my fist visit in June 2013. A new sign posted at the dead end road where I had previously parked indicating the permanent relocation of trailhead to Castle Rock. Dogs were also no longer allowed beyond the trailhead sign.

Sine I had the pups with me, I needed a different strategy. With a super late start of 2:30 PM and not a backup plan, I came up with another possible idea. So I started driving down Number 2 Canyon and looked for signs and/or fences marking private property but didn’t see any beyond the first mile. A pullout parking at mile 2.5 across was a good spot to go up the south-trending rib to gain the main ridge that ran across top of the canyon.

Pups and I followed the ridge easterly and eventually reached our destination. This was a great vantage point to see the entire City of Wenatchee as well as the Columbia River.
